Anything goes at Polkadoodles

Good morning my lovelies, we've got a new challenge starting over at Polkadoodles and of course our theme is 'Anything Goes'! There is a lovely prize from Polkadoodles for our lucky winner and loads of inspiration from my teamies too! The DT were challenged to use a die cut for this challenge and that was a real treat as there are so many gorgeous Polkadoodles dies to choose from.

 I've used stamps from the beautiful Bella Fleur A5 Clear stamp set to create this little wildflower meadow. I stamped the images with versamark on watercolour paper and embossed with white embossing powder before watercolouring with distress inks. The butterfly is from Belle Papillon Stamp Set and I've used the matching Butterfly Doublet Die to create the butterfly using acetate and glitter on the back. The frame was from the pound shop, it was a bit of a bright colour so I painted it with white gesso and popped my little scene in the frame.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Artistic Stampers: Floral Fantasy
As you like it: Favourite die and why
 (my favourite die is this lovely butterfly die from Polkadoodles, its great to use on it's own but even prettier with the matching stamp)
Country View Crafts: Flower Power
Die Cut Divas: Flowers
Little Miss Muffet: Anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
